this last time out ya'll were breaking stuff without touching the skinny petal. at least my way was more fun.

Now Richard and his "I'll take the right" bit... that required a lot of the skinny petal.... his floor board might be a bit lower there now.  :laughing7:

Its all Noah's fault on that one. He said since he only had 2wd left, he would do any trail I could do.  I just wanted to give him a run for the money.  :steeringwheel:

Y'all are ridiculous lol  :tongue3: .... Status on Top Hand is good. I have the new rear axle built and ready to roll under the truck. I finished the front gear setup yesterday and will be getting the axle shafts/and outer hubs/bearings etc installed today. It may be trail worthy within the next week  :dance:

As a side note I am really enjoying the process of setting up gears. It is extremely tedious and all said and done takes an incredibly large amount of time  :confused2: . However it has been a good learning experience and I feel confident that the new 5.13 gears will run a long a happy life. The rear axle took aproximately 20-25 hours from start to finish.... the front axle will probably be about 15-20..... I am getting the hang of it though  :13:

hopefully you get faster with time as well... thats a lot of hours in an axle.

sounds like you will be ready to have fun soon.

Hey if you want some practice, you can do the crush sleeve eliminator on my 9-1/4's.

We wont talk about the bill   :confused2: ... It damn well better perform now though  :steeringwheel:

This is kind of a rolling showcase for customers so it is all worth it.

The bar is set high because of Eric... he did this .... I could be tuning hondas   :laughing7:
